Blythewood Dixie Youth Machine Pitch All-Stars seek gold

BLYTHEWOOD – Another year and another Blythewood Dixie Youth team will be representing the town in The Dixie Youth World Series. This time it will be The Machine Pitch All-Stars headed to Cleveland, Mississippi for the World Series from July 28 through Aug.1. This tops off their first ever state title in a close 5-3 contest against Lexington.

Last year, the Blythewood Dixie Youth Minor’s team not only won the district tournament, which was held in Blythewood, but claimed the State Championship and brought home a third-place finish in the Dixie Youth World Series.

The All-Stars dismantled the competition enroute to their World Series appearance. They began by routing Summerville, 11-1, and followed that victory with a dominant 9-2 win over Central.

The team solidified their streak of blowout wins by downing Delmar, 17-5, Gaffney, 12-0, and Bluttfon,15-6. The team will get their first taste of action on July 28 when they take on Alabama at 2:30 p.m., and their second game will be against Cleveland at 5:30 p.m.
